Summer gives us all a chance to slow down and spend quality time with our loved ones. Enjoy your children. We have to make the most of this time because it passes so quickly.
I hope all of our students are enjoying summer activities. I love to see our students riding their bikes in our neighborhood, having family picnics at Glen Island and playing on summer teams such as baseball. As you plan and organize your child’s summer days, please remember to include time for reading. You can make reading fun for your child. To make reading more engaging, read to your child and have your child read to you. It is important that our children are reading on a daily basis so they continue to flourish.
Jefferson students are all required to complete summer reading activities. Assignments went home in the June report card envelopes. For students entering grades 3, 4, and 5, we also sent home math assignments. Children are expected to master math facts. Children who know their facts will be much more successful when they encounter challenging mathematical concepts.
For information on summer assignments and grade level supply lists, please go to the Jefferson website, jefferson.nred.org and click the parent & community link. This link will bring you to our digital back pack which is a file for important notes sent home in June 2014.
Our partnership is vital for the success of your child. Thank you for your support. I wish everyone a fun and restful summer vacation.
